  1. Milam & Greene Triple Cask Bourbon

    3 barrels. Texes Bourbon blend with Tennessee whisky.. ingredient sources from Washington and Wyoming. One review pointed out creamsicle on the nose and pallet.. definitely nailed it. Slightly sweet, kiss of vanilla and a cinnamon barrel toast finish. It's excellent stuff. A more relaxed dram suited for after dinner or night cap.

    Bath #12. First off, I love the idea of local sourced grain. Small batch should mean small and that's the flavor you get with this Bird. With a mash bill of 60% rye, 30% wheat, and 10% malted barley and distilled in copper pot stills.. we are delighted with a smooth well made dram. Cranberry, leather and cigar box on the nose, rye on the tip of the tongue, wheat and an all spice finish with an oak note lingering. My favorite part is definitely the nose. Raisins and cranberries stand out and for a rye it's on the lighter spicy side of the spectrum, but definitely present. Creamy mouth feel makes it well worth the price. This whisky is worth seeking out! If you can find it.. I'd recommend trying Studio Bourbon out of Minnesota if one enjoyed this taste profile..
  3. Connemara Original Peated Single Malt

    Better than some Scotch. This whiskey is nicely done. Peat bops you the nose on every sip, velvet smokey honey coat the palate nicely and a long chard oak after taste lingers for some time. A lot more peat and smoke than I was expecting for an Irish, but a rich and heavy single malt body to support the peat smoke flavors. Could be an everyday drinker for a peat head. Surprised on the low rating, as I believe this can best a lot of Scotch offerings of peat. Would be great around a campfire or a cold winter night and a heavy meal.

    Bought Connemara and Blackpitts together.. Birthday Gift to myself.. long weekend! As a big fan of peat this is on the lighter side in flavor. Tasting notes are spot on, and with Teeling's wine barrel aging, it always shines in the tasting experience. The wine notes give this whiskey it's peaks. Which is the difference between the classic Connemara. At the price point Blackpitts sits at, anyone looking to scratch the itch for peat, should still lean towards Connemara. As a big fan of Teeling this whiskey does not stand up to the price. For the craft of this whiskey, it is a cut above Connemara and does offer a unique taste of white wine barrel aging with a kiss of smoke flavor. Melon and peach, hint of peat, stood out for me and the finish is dry and a bit harsh.. for the price.

    Are there better Rye? Yes of course there are. But this particular rye from a big name like Canadian Club, is rather tasty. At $20 a bottle this will satisfy the casual rye drinker. It's a good one to have in the house for the holidays and would stand out in any mixer. If one is looking to fill the bar, don't over look this one.

    I was dooped. Went to the store wanting Glendalough Single Grain, passed on Saint. Kevin for this beauty. Didn't know if I was getting Bourbon or Irish gold, to be honest the label sold me. It's a freshy. The liquid is aged 2 years. But, it don't taste young! Introduced to the states a year ago from Australia!! I've had the Teelings line up and those bros taught me wine barrels and Irish whiskey are beautiful. This particular whiskY can compare to those of Teeling. The nose smells of a budget bourbon but the liquid rolls like a good Irish. Flavor is up front like a good whiskey and the finish is dark fruit that kinda lingers in a nice way. Everything about this whiskY is excellent from the cork and label to the liquid itself. Do not pass this bottle up.. I would recommend it as a gift, like a hey I know what good whiskY is.. ha! Enjoy!

    Having surfed the bottom shelf for the last 2 months, my palate is toasted by the bottled in bond line up one can find. This particular brand was a recommendation from a Louisville native.. and with that I must say, this bottle of 86 is taasty! It's entry level sure.. but doesn't that mean the benchmark? If Old Forester is leading with this? We can be sure as shit the 100 proof and beyond are even better. Grab a bottle for the holidays, share with friends and family.. might turn some heads with this particular brand! *Louisville is proud of their Limestone water, and should be! This bourbon is made with that same water and it very well could be the difference in taste*

    Plucked this gem hoping it would scratch the itch for a rye. It's quality stuff, and I'd agree that it drinks like a normal bourbon. Flavors are as advertised aannd at the price point it's a steal, Thank You Jim Beam. Rye is all the hardiness of this liquid. And the finish seems warmer than the 45%abv. Oak is dry. It's impressive and would make a great gift.

  9. Appleton Estate Signature Blend Rum

    84 rating is kinda low balling this easy sipper. It's not forward on any flavor in the spectrum, but there is a wave of baking spices, vanilla oak and some funk. This can easily be a go to all summer and would be an easy sell for the rum and coke drinker. Appleton Estate definitely scratches the itch when one wants rum. Nonetheless, when the bottle goes quick that usually means one thing. It's good.

    If you drink rum..don't get this. If you want to taste funky crafted rum? Get this. You really need to drink a variety of rum to appreciate the quality of this pot still beauty. I have to say the smell is difficult to accept at first.. but a few deep sniffs to find the alcohol, sip and exhale.. wow! Mineral water, pot still elegance, sea salt, delicate cane sugar, soft barrel char and sweet fruit. But the fruit is entirely up to you to find. Banana, sure, but ripe. Strawberry, yea I find it. Tart. Pineapple, mhmm. It's all about getting OVER that smell, nothing can really compare. It's very well crafted and layered in flavor. It's really a top shelf experience and VERY unique.
